Rock matriarch Sharon Osbourne was convinced she was going to die at one point during her battle with colon cancer.

The host of the SHARON OSBOURNE SHOW was diagnosed with the illness last year (02), and although the strong-willed wife of rocker Ozzy is now in remission, she admits there were periods when she thought her time was up.

She says, "At one point during my fight with cancer, I believed I was going to die.

"While I was in chemotherapy, I was so sick that I couldn't even get out of bed to go to the bathroom. I thought to myself, 'I don't know if I can fight any more.'

"But then, little by little, I got stronger. When the good days outnumbered the bad, I knew I was getting better."

And Sharon was always supported throughout her dark days by her devoted husband Ozzy.

She adds, "Through it all, Ozzy stayed by my side. I couldn't have made it without him."
